South Africa won by 20 runs

5.1

Benn to Kallis, 1 run, round the wicket to Kallis, back of a length outside off, single to short third

5.2

Benn to Smith, 2 runs, flights it, Smith clears the front leg, looks to go down the ground, but gets the splice of the bat and clears in-fielders on the off side

5.3

Benn to Smith, FOUR, lucky this time, makes room, looking to go over extra, Benn follows him, gets the nick, pretty thick, and it flies to the third-man boundary

5.4

Benn to Smith, 2 runs, steps out and goes towards wide long-on, where Chanderpaul makes a good running save to his left

5.5

Benn to Smith, OUT, he has manufactured one shot too many, makes room again, finds the ball a bit short, goes through with the shot, the thick outside edge lobs it to backward point

GC Smith c Fletcher b Benn 31 (29m 18b 6x4 0x6) SR: 172.22

7.3

9.1

Benn to Kallis, 1 run, short and straight, Kallis looks to pull, this one is too quick, though, but he gets one to long-on

15.1

Benn to de Villiers, 3 runs, nicely played, opens the face, from in front of stumps, beats Gayle at short third man, but the captain chases well, sticks his boot out to save the boundary

15.2

Benn to Morkel, 1 run, short, spinning in, cut away to short third

15.3

Benn to de Villiers, FOUR, was just hinting to go for the reverse, Benn pulls the length back, and like lightning AB rocks back and pulls it to midwicket

15.4

Benn to de Villiers, 1 run, looks for the big sweep, slips down while doing so, gets one. I remember once he slipped while sweeping in Ahmedabad, and hit it out of the ground, and quite a big ground we have at Motera

15.5

Benn to Morkel, FOUR, deft, smart, runs it down, uses all Benn's pace, beats Sarwan at short third, the outfield is fast

15.6

Benn to Morkel, no run, goes round the wicket, darts it in, Morkel plays it back to him

South Africa 151/3   SJ Benn 4-0-36-1
